“Kamilla has redefined my sense of self and purpose. I feel like my determination to be successful is super amplified, being as she’s now the core of this journey. I really just want to provide her with positivity and culture so that she’s the best woman that she can be. I’ve never been so focused on the quality of life as I am now. Oh, and Dr. Seuss just may be on my SS18 moodboard.” Azeeza Khan

“Being Otis and Ruby’s mom is sort of like having my heart burst open with an insane amount of love every day! My kids influence me with their own unique style and self-expression in every aspect of my life, especially when I am designing jewelry. Whether it is initials, birthstones, hearts, or something with a secret engraving, I design pieces with a sentimental feel for every woman to wear and never want to take off. There is nothing better than wearing a constant reminder of the people who are special to you.” -Jennifer Meyer

“I try to set the example that it’s possible to function as a loving mother while still being able to accomplish goals for yourself as an individual. My kids are all in the arts, so they continually inform and inspire me and my work, and I’m extremely proud of them. All three actively contributed to the business!” Nili Lotan

Time is fleeting and I can’t believe how fast it goes, so I love being there for as many of the games, plays, and pick ups as I possibly can.” -Winnie Beattie, Warm
